A Bag of Canned Food Earns a Free New-Patient Exam with San Diego Chiropractor
San Diego chiropractor challenges neighbors to help his office collect 500 pounds of food for Father Joe’s Villages, offering a free new-patient exam for those who bring a full grocery bag of canned goods.
SAN DIEGO, November 11, 2017—Herfindahl Chiropractic in San Diego announced a major food drive going on through December 16 to gather canned goods for Father Joe’s Villages.
Chiropractor Dr. Ashley Herfindahl said people who bring a bag filled with canned food to their office will be eligible for a free new-patient exam. Food donations can be made at 438 Camino Del Rio South Suite 120 in San Diego.
“This is our third year gathering canned food for Father Joe’s Villages,” said Herfindahl. “We have a tradition of community service every holiday season, but the last two years working with Father Joe’s were fantastic. They make an enormous positive impact for those in need in our community, and we love working with them.”
Last year, the chiropractic office and its patients gathered 200 pounds of non-perishable food items, but this year, their goal is 500 pounds.
San Diego has the fourth largest population of homeless people in the nation; the Regional Task Force on Homelessness counted 9,116 people living on the streets in their 2017 survey.
Statistics provided by Father Joe’s Villages report that they house around 1,800 people most nights, feed at least 3,000 meals a day to San Diego’s homeless population and provide more than 6,000 medical care visits at their Village Family Health Center. They said their services enable many people to get stable jobs and permanent housing.
“As a San Diego chiropractor, I can’t help but be impressed by how Father Joe’s Villages improves the lives of so many people, giving them hope and power to change their lives for the better,” said Herfindahl. “As a chiropractor, I care deeply about community health and my team and I urge everyone to help us feed and encourage more of our neighbors this holiday season.”
Herfindahl said that people who get a free new-patient exam for bringing in a bag of canned food by December 16 can also improve their own health in the process. These appointments include consultations about any health concern they currently have, a physical exam, x-rays if needed and a full report on the exam results.
“Chiropractic isn’t just about back pain,” said Herfindahl. “These exams can help us find the causes of headaches, migraines, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, knee pain—even fatigue and excess stress. It’s a great opportunity to help the community while getting some help for your own health.”
